Pakistani Cash and Carry

The place where the boat was moored for so long was not the best place for our grocery budget since the only store for groceries was not exactly cheap.

To try to get us back on track I was pleased to find conveniently placed cash and carry with a lovely and inexpensive green grocery section.  The bargains abounded and I took full advantage of them.

We are now the proud owners of
  • 4 K of onions
  • 12 cans of garbanzo beans
  • 400 g of garlic powder
  • 1 lb. of freshly ground chicken mince
  • 1 L of olive oil
  • 30 large eggs
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 eggplant
  • 3 long English cucumbers
  • 4 fresh apricots
  • 400 g of organic natural yogurt
  • 7 fresh tomatoes
  • 2 small heads of fresh cauliflower
  • 1 large can of spinach
  • 20 bulbs of fresh garlic
  • 12 cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 12 cans of kidney beans
And, what did all this bounty cost us:   £37!
There is a lot of good eating, now and later this summer from the canned items, for a fairly small outlay.
I think our budget is well on the way to being back in hand.
